Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Carrie! I'm so sorry you were disappointed with this preservative. We use our Phenonip all of the time and have never noticed a lingering odor in our final products as seen in our Emulsified Scrub (from Scratch) on Soap Queen TV. I even went out to our warehouse to smell the Phenonip out of bottle to see exactly what you were talking about and detected no sweet, floral scent at all it smelled more lightly of plastic. I am worried you may have received the wrong product. I will email you personally to resolve this issue.
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Elizabeth! I'm so glad this preservative works well for you! In our tests and recipes, we didn't notice any smell in the finished projects when used at .5-1% in your recipe, as seen in the Rose Clay Exfoliating Mask on Soap Queen TV. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this further!
